It's only natural that last week's news of the upcoming Target and Neiman Marcus CFDA designer collaboration would be followed by an all-out marketing blitz — and now, it's finally begun. First up: this just-released and pretty intriguing behind-the-scenes glimpse at the collaboration's starting point, which, logically, included lots of meetings in colorfully decorated studios and lots of fabric, print, and sketch reviews. The video shows all that, plus offers cameo appearances by nearly every one of the collaboration's key players, including — but not limited to — Diane von Furstenberg, Ken Downing, Eddie Borgo, Georgina Chapman, Robert Rodriguez, Tracy Reese, Stacey Bendet, and Prabal Gurung. See it all below, and keep those eyes peeled for any clues as to what the 50-piece Holiday collection might actually look like.

The Young Hollywood Awards took place in LA last evening, and while celebrities including Ginnifer Goodwin and Sophia Bush looked adorable in ladylike dresses, it was all about who was wearing the pants at this stylish affair. Hailee Steinfeld took a risk in a silvery metallic top and pant combo by Prabal Gurung with ornate gold detailing, while Ashley Greene opted for a more classic albeit sultry style in a tuxedo-inspired two-piece ensemble by Donna Karan. Watch today's Fab Flash to hear more about both of these fabulous looks. On Allison McNamara: Madewell top.
Prabal Gurung said he "wanted to bring together a juxtaposition of florals and severe angles" when he designed his Resort 2013 collection, and he managed to do just that. Inspired in part by artist Aaron Moran, whose work repurposes decaying found materials, Gurung paired floral prints with sharp lines, both in the graphic elements on his garments and in the way those garments were cut. A number of brightly colored dresses feature hemlines with wedges sliced into them, while the flowers on skirts and other dresses are separated by bands of solid color or have graphic prints superimposed over them. The collection is bold, striking, and, in Gurung's words, "not too cute, not too sweet."
Diane Kruger has delivered a slew of fabulous red-carpet getups in Cannes over the past week.

The German actress has worn white to the last three red carpets in Cannes, each of which is utterly perfect in its own unique way. Watch today's FabFlash and vote for your favorite look below!

>> If it's possible that anyone has forgotten the intricate, digitized floral prints that played a central role in Prabal Gurung's Spring 2012 collection, this campaign video will serve as a good reminder of their power.
The video moves quickly between shots of model Candace Swanepoel and a very pretty purple orchid, as if to blur the line between Gurung's creations and the flowers that inspired them. The 38-second clip only features one dress from the Spring collection, but the overall effect of the video is striking enough to make up for not seeing the rest of it.
The big day is finally here: The Hunger Games hits theaters tonight at midnight! And while we've been eagerly waiting to see the movie, we have loved watching Jennifer Lawrence sizzle on red carpets worldwide. From London, to Paris, and everywhere in between, Jennifer has been showing off her sultry style via cutouts, plunging necklines, and curve-hugging gowns. In today's Fab Flash, we've rounded up Jennifer's sexiest premiere moments; take a look! On Allison McNamara: H&M top, Banana Republic necklace.
As The Hunger Games release edges ever closer, we have the ensemble cast's red carpet — or in this case, black carpet — style to tide us over. Last night's star-studded Los Angeles premiere amped up our excitement factor tenfold, much in part to the insanely gorgeous fashion showcased. Needless to say, capitol couture and district chic were at an all-time high. Jennifer Lawrence donned a gilded and customized Prabal Gurung cutout gown from his Fall '12 collection, Elizabeth Banks channeled Effie's quirk in a futuristic orange Atelier Versace mini, and Miley Cyrus opted for an embellished Emilio Pucci crop-top-and-maxi-skirt combo for starters. From there, we spotted Shailene Woodley in Honor, Leven Rambin in Chagoury Couture, and more. Click through now to see all of the fashion from last night's festivities — and tell us who you think was best dressed in the comments!
Last night LA was abuzz with The Hunger Games premiere at Nokia Theatre in downtown. And starlet Jennifer Lawrence did not disappoint in her gold lamé cutout Prabal Gurung gown. Lamé isn't the easiest fabric to pull off, but the actress looked simply out of this world. While Jennifer's dress is strictly red-carpet material, we're here to prove that lamé, if done in doses, can also be worn for your everyday life. From a lamé cutout minidress for your next soiree to a sheer lamé button-down for weekend fun to a lamé pencil skirt for the office, check out three ways to rock the sassy fabric off the red carpet.
